Hotel Melia to city center transportation

We are attending conference and staying at Hotel Melia (Yes, I know it is inconvenient location). Could some of you wonderful people please give me specific instructions on what type of public transport is recommended to get to city center? Also, how far is the station? How do I get to station walking? Will fare be covered by weekly transport pass? What subway / and or train and or bus do you recommend? Finally, is it safe for individual female to walk from station to hotel later in evening? Thank you all so much. We are excited about visiting this wonderful city.

Take subway line U1 which links that neighborhood to the center. Buy a guidebook and/or download network maps from the website of the Vienna Public Transport Body "Wiener Linien" in order to learn more about public transport in Vienna.

The closest stop of U1 is "Kagran - VIC", takes approx. 5 minutes to walk there from the hotel. Vienna weekly passes cover all means of transport in Vienna. No safety issues, just use common sense.

Your impressive hotel overlooks the station and your concierge will direct you if you’ve any doubt. U1 has three stops in the central zone (Schwedenplatz, Stefansplatz and Karlsplatz) which are 6-9 minutes ride from the stop (which is actually called Kaisermühlen-VIC) meaning your hotel isn’t that inconvenient as it may at first seem.

Great Hotel. I stayed there for a convention in May.

The quickest transfer by public transport is a direct Vienna AirportLines bus service from the airport going to Kaisermuehlen - VIC. It leaves from directly in front of the airport terminal building and costs about 6eu but it runs every hour. Alternatively, train/metro via the city.

The hotel is not well signposted from the bus stop or the metro station (both about 100m from the hotel). Just look for a black skyscraper, the hotel is contained within that building with an entrance on that level. The best way to travel to the city is by metro; cheap and quick - about 15 min to Stephansplatz.

Regarding closest subway station: It's actually "Kaisermühlen - V.I,C." and not "Kagran - VIC" as I stated above.

Actually did a bit more research and looks like from the VIE airport, take the train to Wien HbF then connect to U1 and exit at Kaisermuhlen station? Thanks everyone!
